This is Why. . .
Once again, I have accepted the challenge on behalf of the 20,000 individuals in Illinois whose lives have been touched by multiple sclerosis. This will be my 13th year playing in the event. When I first participated, I was fortunate not to know anyone directly with MS. However, this fortune has changed and I now have a few friends that have been diagnosed with MS and battle on a daily basis with this disease. So, on Saturday, August 10, 2013, I will be competing again in the MS Slugfest - a charity softball tournament to raise money for MS to help those friends and others fight this battle. People living with MS overcome challenges everyday: to walk, to have energy to go to the store, to have the will power not to give up. That is why it is so important to me that I support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and I need your help.

How Your Contribution Helps
When a person is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, the changes that occur often have an impact on the entire family. Your donation will help provide programs and services to the 20,000 people in Illinois with MS and their families. The Greater Illinois Chapter commits at least 88% to funding these vital programs and services, and to funding research into the cause and cure of MS.
